I purchased this product 5 years ago. It is very functional and easy to set up. The problem that I have encountered is that the countersunk bolts that attach the upper bracket to the upright support leg have a tendency to break. I don't know if this is a result of traveling on rough roads or not but it always occurs on the back rack. I have contacted the manufacturer to see if there is a fix for this but got a very vague response. Not impressed!
